When will smoking be banned outside?

I understand that people can do what they want. I don't have a problem with people slowly killing themselves (unless their family). Do you!!! But at the same time have some consideration for others. THAT is my only problem with smokers. It is cold as heck in Washington, D.C. right now and smoking at the bus terminal is not cool, especially when you are trying to get some air after being covered head to toe, because your freezing. Anyway, I think it should be banned outdoors or anywhere else if you ask me except for their own homes. It's not that I don't know smokers, hell, my mom, dad, sister and brother smoke (not in my house) and yes, I have to put up with it during holidays sometimes (than I have a choking attack and they quit).

I always said if I was a smoker I would be seasonal, only when it was warm. Okay, one more rant about smoking that I can't understand. My sister, smokes and have children. With each pregnancy she quit smoking and took it back up once she had the babies - if you can do it then, why can't you do it the rest of the time. Maybe, I am not suppose to understand.

Until the next rant.

I don't think it's one of those things you can understand. Shawn smokes. But, it's always outside. I deal with it, because seriously-what can you do? If it wasn't smoking it would be something else. *sigh* Maybe when they all get lung cancer they will realize it wasn't worth it! Who knows!

I agree. I hate smoking too but what can we do...

Thanks for stopping by my blog. Pomatomus is great. I did have to rip back a few times but it was more because I was more eager to knit than to read the instructions. Haha. It's a easy and beautiful design. Try it out! What's the worst that can happen? Just frogging is all. ;-)
